In my opinion, the world will not end in the year 2012; therefore, global warming cannot be the cause of such a catastrophe.  I do think, however, that weather and global warming are inextricably linked.  Because i do believe global warming is happening now and causing many changes in the climate and to the earth, we do need to make changes and try to reduce our footprint on the world.  The arctic ice is retreating at an alarming rate causing the polar bears and seals to struggle with their habitat disappearing. The ozone layer is changing which will continue and cause harm if we don't slow down the rate of change.  I do think we can still arrest the rapid changes happening if we change our behavior even if it is one person at a time.
